The Altana is a bright, airy and centrally located 1 bedroom penthouse, found only few steps from St. Mark's Square, with panoramic roof-top terrace.

Being located in a quiet residential Calle (small lane) far enough from the busy tourist itinerary nearby, it is absolutely quiet.

It is composed of a spacious double bedroom with a large walk-in wardrobe and air-conditioning; a luminous and very spacious loft-style living room with fantastic canal view and double sofa bed (that is as comfortable as a normal double bed which can easily be opened and closed so during the day you can use the living room freely); a brand new bathroom with large shower cabin and small laundry room; a functional and well equipped open space kitchen with 4 burners stove, fridge, dishwasher, freezer, oven, kettle, etc; a bright dining area with a glass table for up to 6 people.

From the living room you can walk-up the architectural staircase to access a cosy mezzanine furnished with a library, an office desk, a comfortable couch for reading and most importantly that give access to the panoramic Altana (traditional wooden roof-top terrace). The view from here is breath-taking: the panorama includes San Giorgio Island with its remarkable Palladian Church, St. Marks Basilica and Bell Tower, Basilica Santi San Giovanni e Paolo and many other Venice landmarks. The sunny Altana is furnished with a table and 4 chairs which is perfect for a relaxing breakfast or aperitif at sunset.

This apartment is perfect for a couple that wishes plenty of living space but it can comfortably host 4 people for short stays. Please note that the living room is not air-conditioned - but if you keep the bedroom door open and the windows shut it will cool down well.

This house is full of light during all day long and has everything you need for an unforgettable holiday. It truly makes you feel at home away from home! It is not recommended for families with small kids as there are various fragile items in the apartment (glasses and antiques) and the open space staircase is not suitable for children unless they are used to such stairs (please see the photographs of the stairs in the photo gallery).
